I bake to control things in my life

like trying to find a way to get luna to stop dropping her slobbery tennis ball on my capslock key (she is quite accurate) when she wants to play fetch which is all the time.

but i digress...

in light of the "great move" coming in less than a month, i had a real hankering for apple crisp. THUS after a killer (in the good way) yoga class, i skipped over to kroger in my sweaty (and i do mean sweaty) clothes to buy some apples and other necessary things.

Here you go folks- how to make a delicious apple crisp. and don't worry, it's healthy because there are apples and oatmeal in it.

Step 1: Round up the most attractive assistants you can. I found two- see below.

Step Two- Preheat oven to 350 and butter up a dish. the recipe says an 8X8- but as you can see i just used what i had. it doesnt really matter. (please, do not stare at my midget thumb)
Step three: peel apples

Step four: Core apples and the slice into even smaller pieces. I did some long ways and some short ways just to "give it some texture." Frankly- i don't even know if that makes sense, but it sounded good to me at the time.Step five (and a few more)- lightly cover apples in lemon juice. toss. less lightly cover apples in sugar. dust apples with cinnamon. toss. put all of this in your buttered dish. hehehe.
Step six: make the topping. 1/2 cup (plus two tablespoons) of all purpose. 1/2 cup oats (the instant ones do just fine). 1/4 cup brown sugar. 1/4 cup regular sugar. 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg. 1/4 teaspoon (or however much you want) cinnamon. Mix with a fork. THEN (this is the good part kids) MELT 6 TABLESPOONS unsaled BUTTERRRRRR! and pour it in your mixture, then stir until its alllll mixed.

Step seven: Crumble the topping over the apples. Pop in the over for 35-40 minutes.

Step eight: admire your sweet assistant.

Step nine- remove from oven and feed your family--- hey dad!

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm delicious. and remember, its healthy because it is made with apples and this was devoured by my family within 24 hours.

ultra love.
